Right now I'm super broke but I have access to a udemy account with lots of courses. I also have enough mobile data and a HP mini laptop.
The thing is, I don't know which course to choose. I want to learn something profitable with my mini laptop and start Upwork hustle in the next 60 days.
Suggestions are welcome

Get a mentor, someone who's already experienced in the field to guide you. There's a limit to what Udemy videos can teach you, that's experience. And your mentors have this. Search for Olamide Towobola on LinkedIn or Twitter, he's one of the best freelance coach I know.

You have to be creative, yes. But it's not really rocket science. The devil is in the details, as they say. It is practice, practice and practice. And, you have to cultivate the habit of reading books and studying copy samples that pulled in massive sales before. Also you probably do not have a direct mentor to guide you through. If you go at it alone, you won't get anywhere fast.

By the way, what Copywriting courses did you get? Is it free or paid?
Paid course

About writing on tech, I recently applied to a website to write on tech as an intern to learn the ropes, anything on how it's done would be greatly appreciated.

As good as this is, a few things are wrong, was it a friendly game? And mistakes with spelling. Work a bit better on graphics and you could also display write-ups faster.


I love football analysis, made me understood how little things matter in execution.
Follow @Utdarena on twitter, not sure he posts analysis these days and there's a YouTube channel that explains in details too... I'll check the name later.

I've bought courses, read articles, watched videos on copywriting, it still seem like rocket science. When I see people do it, like the tutors from the udemy course I bought, it looks easy but the moment I try to practice on a blank sheet, BOOM, I go blank. I think copywriters have some sort of ingenious creativity that help them come up with meaningful and endearing words out of thin air to spark readers interest


Keep writing, practice make perfection.. Truth is, to be a writer, you've to love reading to. Or better still you can for SEO optimization, it also pays well.

Okay, I've seen it. I guess the lack of direct mentorship or being in a community of other copywriters is the issue. Everything about the craft is practice and testing, and it is easier to do so when you have others around you to critique your copy and give you pointers for improvement as you go along.

I had to learn this the hard way after paying for many copywriting courses without gaining anything out of it for months. Feedback by a professional is essential as you learn and practice, and thankfully I've corrected that.

Use Google and YouTube to search for what it means first. Then you'll get an idea of what it requires so you can make an informed decision

It's a skill.. if you are able to learn it, it will pay you..Many websites compete to get to the first page of search engine. They know that visibility is one of the ways to successful online business;hence, they can pay as much as they could to get to the top..

Brush up on the HTML and CSS and see if the laptop will run JavaScript. If it does run JavaScript you can pick it up but I don't know if it will run any JavaScript framework as those things start to consume a lot of memory when you code. If you know HTML, CSS and JavaScript you can look for remote roles as a HTML email developer. Add pardot or HubSpot to it. You can continue to react when you have gotten a new laptop.

Please can you tell me where to find the HTML email developer remote roles. I'm in dire need of a role to pay the bills. I am junior web developer with MERN stack but finding job is very difficult. Thank you in anticipation.
